  • You know, this does give a good (enough) idea for re-using much of the mechanics for Demon, though (Descent as well as Inferno-ish)

    Descent:
    Family: Incarnation
    Hunger: Agenda
    Atavisms: Demonic Form
    Nightmares: Embed equivalents
    Lair: Bolthole + personal Hell
    • Gaining [Primum]: Building up resonance with a location, and incorporating it into your personal Hell/Infrastructure.
    Satiety: Cover + Aether
    • Low Cover: The Demon's Form isn't as distanced from their facade, expressing its power more fully.
    • High Cover: The Demon...

  • Pacts... are weird. X's memories should remain, just with the Demon photo-shopped in as a replacement. This... may not make sense given other historical "Facts" about the Demon (how were you raising X in Podunk, and getting a drug addiction in Cambodia at the same time?). It is these inconsistencies that can be investigated and unraveled....

  • If someone Pacts away "Parent of X", and the Demon incorporates that into their Cover, that Cover then was always the Parent of X, making X the child of a Demon, and thus, an Offspring.

  • Really, really weakened Mage spells, since their Dice Pool is meh, they get no free Spell Factors, and they can't use Yantras....

  • For consequences, think how their Intended Function can go wrong - Dropped off at the wrong place or something else being brought to you, or the results of the query being returned to the wrong person.

    For ideas:
    • Retrieves items
    • Bad Fortune (like a curse)
    • Good fortune (like all lights being Green and no traffic, or stuff just happening to turn out your way)
    • Animal influence
    • Make other things avoid X

  • Demons and Stigmatics can see past Concealment Infrastructure. Other than that, I don't think it has hard details. If you want to keep G-M stuff hidden, then keep it effective vs other supernaturals. If you want to involve other supernaturals more, make it easier to pierce (detection power, or just supernaturals aren't affected).

    Do note that I think there was a Stigmatic Mage listed somewhere, so a Stigmatic Vampire wouldn't be too much out of the norm.

  • Beyond a certain point, it just isn't efficient.

    If you can already get what you want, why bother controlling more than 51%?...

  • 192) Something blew a major Occult Matrix, and various random Latents in a wide area have been... altered. It seems to have only affected Latents (not full Offspring or Fractals), and what it did was give them a random Exploit, making them close to living Exploited Gadgets. Warping varies, with some noticeably changed, and others still human seeming. So far, the Machine seems to be observing passively, and the local Agencies are doing similar. No one knows how long this status quo will continue, of when these miraculous new powers will made headlines.

    [This is also an excuse to run...

    How about the agents of a Compromised Agency? The locals used to talk about them as being the go-to for X, competent operators all around. But now? The Demons are gone and their assets, various Stigmatic and mortal agents, only wear human shapes, being hollowed out machine things that serve the G-M's unspoken will.
    Better leave their former stomping grounds alone, and don't traffic with anyone else that knew them.

    Adamantine Frame (•• or •••••)
    Prerequisites: Steel Frame Modification
    Effect: Your metallic superstructure is even more reinforced than conventional metal accounts for. Your bones' effective durability increases to 5 (increasing Structure), your unarmed attacks are now 1L. At five dots, Durability and Structure increase another 2 points, attack damage increases to 2L, and you gain 1/0 Armor.

    Uncertainty Principle (Mundane)
    Either a particle's current position or momentum can be known. Demons with this Embed have remembered how to apply similar principles to their own metaphysical nature, shrouding either their current position, or future path from occult detection.
    Dice Pool: Manipulation + Occult
    Action: Reflexive

    Dramatic Failure: The Demon's attempt to mask their signature backfires and instead alerts the God-Machine as to their presence. Make a Compromise roll.

  • Using such mechanisms, provided certain terms are automagically enforced, you can even use them as detection methods - make a Pact for a small, but noticeable element conditional upon X doing Y. If you notice the presence or absence of said element, Y happened to X.
